    I'll start;
    Are you Pascal's Triangle? Because you've got my binomial expanding.

    If I was an enzyme I'd be DNA helicase so I can unzip your genes.

    Maths puns are the first sine of madness.

    Keeping it real.

    What do scientists call a benzene ring with all the carbon atoms replaced with iron atoms?
    A ferrous wheel.

    Just before the holidays, my Maths teacher said "Asymptotes are like strippers: you can get close but you can't touch". I know it's not a joke but I'll definitely never forget what an asymptote is.

    Anyway, I just lost an electron. I should really keep a better ion them.

    Got some to share:
    Argon walks into a bar.
    The bartender says, "We don't serve noble gases here!"
    Argon doesn't react.

    A neutron walks into a bar. "I'd like a beer" he says. The bartender promptly serves up a beer."How much will that be?" asks the neutron. "For you?" replies the bartender, "no charge".

    It's not technically a joke, but this YouTube video is a parody of "I Will Survive" and is very well done: I Will Derive!

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    Because chickens at rest tend to remain at rest, and chickens in motion tend to cross roads...



    Two atoms are walking down the street. Suddenly one gasps, looks around him and turns to the other,
    "OMG I've lost an electron!"
    "Are you sure?" replies the other.
    "Yes, I'm positive!"

    Our physics teacher has stuck nerdy jokes all round her classroom - love it!

    What do you get if you take a seal and remove an electron?

    Why is benzene such a popular name?
    It's got a nice ring to it.

    Why do chemists prefer day rates?
    Because they're cheaper than nitrates.

    What did the thermometer say to the graduated beaker?
    You may have graduated, but I've got more degrees than you.

    Oh dear...
